Deep in the hills of Martin County, in southern Indiana, there is a town called Loogootee. It is a town rich in fond memories, sports fame, church families, family ties, and good friends.

A few years ago, someone approached me regarding putting together a book about the town. This is the result of that idea. I asked for stories telling about memories of growing up in Loogootee, and I am amazed at all the submissions I have received over the past two years.

Patty (Arvin) Williams stepped in to help, and she collected several stories from her friends to add to the collection. Without her assistance, I don't think this book would have ever been completed.
